Boxing technique (2020)
Tactics, awareness and decision-making are very important in boxing when sparring or competing but the focus of the session Richard reflects on in this chapter was purely technical and aimed at learners with no, or little, knowledge or experience of this sport. It focuses on teaching the jab and cross as two basic punches in boxing to undergraduate Sport Coaching students in New Zealand as a way of showing them how to use PPed for coaching technique as an alternative to coach-centred, direct instruction. The chapter also identifies how Richard has gradually developed his teaching of this class by critically reflecting on student experience and, considering to what extent he is addressing the features of PPed and how his teaching is influenced by context. He developed the session in New Zealand but ran a workshop on boxing technique at the 2018 Ohio Global Coaching Symposium that he drew on to improve the session but while recognising some limitations due to the different cultures and situations.
